My deepest sympathy to Mary and Tom's family. It was a pleasure to have volunteered with Tom at the Jupiter Medical Center in "Motor Aid". There was never a finer person for me to have known. May God bless the family and know that heaven has gained another angel. Patrick Barone, North Palm Beach.

My father-in-law, Tom Vier, was a kind, generous, wise, modest, brave, compassionate, inquisitive and supportive man; and a loving husband and father. He was a caring grandfather, a fabulous father-in-law and a friend for 44 years. He embodied the best of the greatest generation this country will ever know.

I will always cherish the fond memories I have of our times together, especially the countless Sunday dinners, the annual holiday gatherings and his visits to our numerous home cities. He and Mary were exquisite and generous hosts who always made each visit to their home a special occasion for our entire family.

I will miss him terribly but I am consoled knowing that his was a life fully lived over 92 marvelous years.

Adieu my friend, it was a privilege to know you and to be married to your beautiful daughter, Susan.
